it was amazing
bookshelves: personal-growth, psychology
Recommended for: anyone interested in exploring consciousness and the motivations of our psyches.

As usual, Dr. Hunter's books brought more awareness and gave me much to think about and contemplate. I didn't have a copy of the version of Grimm's tales that he mentioned, and I wished I had. His synopses of the stories, however, were wonderful - very matter-of-fact and to the point. He gave me all of the details needed to understand the points he was making. It also got me thinking about how we could apply some of the patterns and theories to other current day media. I co-own a comic book store, and I am ever amazed at the depth in the comics - I didn't expect it. A similar study of these modern day myths may prove as fruitful as these stories of Grimm.
